Will Chelsea Peretti’s Gina Return For Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Last Season?
Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti was delusional, narcissistic perfection, and her exit from the show disappointed many fans. Gina Linetti was a series regular in Seasons 1-5 and a guest star in Season 6. However, she might be visiting the 99th Precinct for Season 8. Chelsea Peretti hinted on Twitter last year that she might make an appearance in the final season, but nothing has been confirmed. Many Brooklyn Nine-Nine castmates tweeted their support, including Stephanie Beatriz, who joked that she was already writing a part for Gina.
Around the same time, executive producer Dan Goor told TV Line he regretted not being able to feature Gina in Season 7 and wanted to “make sure” she was in Season 8. However, all of this happened before the writing team scrapped a few episodes in the wake of BLM, so a possible Gina episode might have been cut in favor of a more conscientious storyline. Not that a better sense of social responsibility is a bad thing, just something to keep in mind when it comes to extraneous plots and guest stars.
